With the aim to support the growing number of Irish and Portuguese companies in this “industrial hub” region, we assembled an impressive panel of speakers and invited all business leaders in the region and our members near and far to join us in person and help us build successful long-term business relationships and raise awareness of the IPBN within the region. 

Many thanks to our partner for the conference Global Shares, who recently opened in Porto their second office in Portugal, our host the Porto Innovation Hub  and the City Hall of Porto for helping us make this exciting event possible and to set the stage for future IPBN events in the “City of the Bridges,” so that it can become an integral part of the IPBN just as Lisbon and the Algarve are.
